npHE athletic resolutions were refused by 
Amherst and Williams, as many expected, 
but the}-^ have served a good purpose and the 
desired end, that we might play the scheduled 
games with Williams with medical students on 
the nine, has been accomplished. The Amherst 
students have not passed any resolution cor- 
responding to the one sent us from Williams, 
and it was only "out of courtesy" that they 
deigned to consider the Dartmouth resolu- 
tions long enough to reject them. We doubt 
not that they were a little surprised to see 
Williams throw off their guiding hand and 
make concessions with us in the matter. We 
are glad to see that the men in the Berkshire 
College refuse to be chucked under the chin 
by Amherst any longer, and have adopted a 
slightly changed policy, not outlined for them, 
as sojnany appear to have been recently, by 
the other college in the league. It looks as 
though Amherst would not form the desired 
league with Williams at present and leave 
Dartmouth out in the cold, if we may judge 
by the action of the Williams men. Time is a 
great factor in bringing about a right settle- 
ment of the pending questions, and we wel- 
come the postponement of the time for making 
a final decision. 

'T^HE mutilation of books and periodicals 
in, and even their theft from, the college 
library by those enjoying its great privileges 
has become a matter for serious considera- 
tion. That all may know the condition of 

things at present, we will state that from the 
reference room three volumes of the Forum, 
one or two of the New England Magazine, 
four or five of Harpers and a few of Outing, 
have been taken. The rest of the college can 
no longer refer to them. If the publishers 
chance to have the volumes for sale, the col- 
lege, with scarcely enough money to buy all 
the new^ books necessary, is put to the ex- 
pense of replacing the stolen ones ; many 
volumes out of print cannot be purchased 
except at a great price, so the set goes incom- 
plete unless the missing numbers chance to be 
returned. Four or five of the current num- 
bers of the magazines in the reading room are 
now missing, and this is not an uncommon 
occurrence. Pictures and reading matter are 
constantly cut from the periodicals on file, 
whether they cost two or seventy-five cents. 
This is bad enough, especially when the mu- 
tilated numbers are not discovered until after 
they have been bound, but to cut illustrations, 
paragraphs and even pages from valuable 
books in the reference and stack rooms, is the 
height of meanness. To mention another in- 
stance : books intended for the use of from 
ten to sixty or more men are often taken from 
the reference tables by individuals, an act 
which not only greatly inconveniences others, 
but may mean the lowering of an examina- 
tion mark, where the reading of the missing 
book would have prevented it. Everyone 
admits that this should not be so, but the 
above facts show that there are some who do 
not live up to their beliefs. Dartmouth stu- 



dents need to bear in mind that they receive 
more privileges in this library than are given 
anywhere else. Do Dartmouth men abuse 
these privileges? It would seem so. Must 
every book and periodical be put under lock 
and key because a few have no idea of other's 
rights? We hope not, but this would seem 
to be the only alternative if these acts we 
have referred to continue. The way these 
depredations can and must be stopped, that 
our freedom in Wilson Hall maybecontinued, 
is for each student to see that nothing of the 
kind is done by him or within his sight or 
knowledge without taking proper means to 
correct it. Any man caught in the act should 
be instantly expelled. We sincerely hope such 
a measure will never have to be taken, and 
w^e still trust, even though we have been led 
to doubt, that the spirit of justice in Dart- 
mouth men will make all right. 

A MATTER which demands attention is 
the way in which attempts are made to 
cover the required ground in studies by some 
instructors. During two-thirds of the term 
short lessons are given, but as the closing 
weeks appear a large amount of the subject- 
matter is found to be untouched. In order 
to cover this work, lessons inordinately long 
are assigned, and the result is that at best 
the rest of the text book is merely scanned, 
and some of the main principles and facts 
that require close study are neglected. The 
book has been read, page by page, from cover 
to cover, but the very rapidit}' with which it 
has been read, prevents any great idea or 
fundamental principle from being firmly fixed 
in the student's mind. More planning before 
the course begins is called for to remedy this. 

'T^IIE new scholarship system which is to Ijc 
inaugurated the coming year will be pr(j- 
ductive of a higher standard of work, and 
thereby furnish incentives to the student to 
do more faithful and efficient work. By rights 
the granting of scholarships shf^uld be based 
on the standing of the student. To the best 

should go the largest scholarships; to the 
poorest, the lowest. It is simply rewarding 
a man according to his work. To give the 
student who maintains the highest and the 
student who receives thelowest rank is unfair. 
In such a case industry and honest toil are 
given no encouragement, and no more atten- 
tion is paid to them than to idleness. Excel- 
lence in study and regularity in attending 
recitations deserve especial notice, and in the 
new scholarship system this end is attained. 
The student who depends on a scholarship 
for his continuance in college will devote him- 
self to his work with much more zeal and 
ardor because he realizes that a high standing 
brings due recompense in a financial way for 
every expended effort. 

TT should be a rule that all who receive an 
average recitation mark of 85 per cent 
shall be exempt from examinations. If such 
a rule were in force more honest determined 
effort in study would be made than there is 
under the present system. There would be 
fewer failures in recitation, and all would feel 
an incentive to attain the required 85 per cent 
which would free them from the tedium and 
trouble of an examination. Many who are 
now contented with 50 per cent as a recita- 
tion mark would be spurred on to better work, 
and to more interest in that work. Further, 
the number of commencement appointments 
would be increased, we believe, and the gen- 
eral standard of scholarship raised. Let this 
rule be adopted, and cribbing and cramming 
for examinations will be vague remembrances 
of the past. 

n^HE Press Club should not be allowed to 
sink into oblivion when it can be made 
so useful. The officers who were elected a 
short time ago ought to show signs of life. 
Their great and immediate duty is to plan 
and execute the work which necessarily falls to 
their lot. Two years ago the club thrived 
and was productive of much good. Last 
year it passed into innocuous desuetude 



where it has since remained, and now is the 
time for the restoration of its former influ- 
ence. Wherever Dartmouth alumni, wherever 
present students are found, wherever those 
who are to come in the future may reside, 
the newspapers that reach such communities 
should have a correspondent who would 
write regularly about the college and about 
its affairs. Booming the college through the 
newspapers is on the whole unpi ohtable, but 
steady correspondence that will keep up the 
interest in us of those concerned is as advisa- 
ble as it is necessary. The first aim is to 
maintain the interest without flagging, and 
this aim is gained only by regularity in writ- 
ing. Correspondents who, for a month or 
mure, fill the columns of their local paper 
with paragraphs on Hanover scenery only to 
drop the work as suddenly as they took it up, 
are not the kind who secure the best results. 
To procure the best correspondents for the 
most reliable newspapers is its duty and mis- 
sion, and an effort with this end in view 
should be made without delay. New Hamp- 
shire is not without bright journalists who 
would gladly give hints to Dartmouth under- 
graduates intending to make newspaper work 
their profession. Let the club secure closer 
connection between the college and the New 
England and national press, and, further, let 
it secure experienced journalists to give 
practical talks on their work. Let the club do 
these things, and then its usefulness will be 
enhanced, and it will become the important 

factor it should in our college life. 


n^HE increasing interest our alumni are 

taking in the college has again been 

shown by the warm welcome they have 

given Pres. Tucker on his tour, and by their 

public and private expressions which show 

their loyalty, and their perfect satisfaction 

with the present administration and its plans 

for the future. Statements and erroneous 

ones too, we believe, like those recently made 

at a graduates' banquet of one of our sister 

colleges by the alumni and faculty of that 

institution, to the effect that athletics and 
social life, among other things, lowered the 
high intellectual standard the college once 
had, and that the college was going to the 
bad generally — such pessimistic statements 
are never heard at Dartmouth gatherings 
nowadays. Our graduates have the right 
idea of existing things as well as the right 
spirit and we share the same with them. We 
gladly accept the greetings brought from 
them by our president and send our heartiest 
in return. 

TTTE are paying good money for the poorest 
quality of electric light ever imposed on 
a community since the incandescent lamp 
was invented. Sensible students have long 
since given up wearing out their visionaries 
by attempting to study by their eight candle- 
power glow and now use them as ornaments, 
vainly hoping that some day the company 
will surprise them with a real sixteen candle 
power light. The old smoky gaslights would 
be preferable to the present electrics which in 
every way are as inconstant as the college 
clock. That the managers of the company 
are observing is shown by the fact that they 
have so quickly caught on to the methods of 
the Hanover extortioners who charge full 
price for what is not its equivalent. The 
company should either give us what we pay 
for or sell out to those who can do it. We 
have been cheated and bothered long enough. 

The I/istener. 

The common expression that it takes all 
sorts of men to make a world is nowhere 
more exemplified than in the assemblage com- 
prising the student body of an American col- 
lege. It is made up of men from the city and 
men from the country. No one state or sec- 
tion can claim an exclusive monopoly of the 
members of a prominent institution. There- 
fore it naturally follows that, aside from sec- 
tional peculiarities, each college community 
will contain several representative types of 
men. It may be of interest to examine a few 



of these types. The first on our Hst is famil- 
iarly known as "The Plugger." A superficial 
observer mi^ht imagine it the end of a colle- 
giate training to develop this type. But, 
whether the average college man fails to 
grasp the great purpose of his course, or for 
whatever reason, the fact remains that this 
type comprises the vast minority of students. 
However, heis to befound. Onecan generally 
find him in his room engaged in continual 
study, or in the recitation room, where he 
never fails to appear. As a bookworm he is 
successful; as a man in the broadest sense of 
the word, a failure. His classmates admire 
him for his talents and industry, but they do 
not pattern after his mode of life. Of the 
proper method of developing the social side 
of his being, or of the inspiration arising from 
the contact of man with man he is altogether 
ignorant. He has missed the best side of his 
college life. 


Of exactly opposite characteristics is the 
man who has entered college without any 
definite purpose of making a proper use of 
his time. He attends recitations when he 
feels so disposed, but his work shows lack of 
preparation. The time he devotes to study 
is chiefly spent in devising methods to escape 
work. He is usually a brilliant man, but the 
careless manner in which he squanders his 
time causes him to waste four years of his 
life without an adequate result. 


From the foregoing t3'pe it is easy to pass 
to the next — that of the professional "bum." 
Fortunately for himself the man of this type 
belongs to a class not easily separated from 
the others. Usually he has entered college 
with a purpose to make the most of himself, 
but chance has thrown him among compan- 
ions who lead him astray. His actions form 
the theme of conversation both in and out of 
the college community. From him many 
people form their judgment of the benefit of a 
college education. Although but few of this 
class are U) be found, the influence of the en- 

tire student body is barely sufficient to coun- 
teract their decided evil influence. 

College men of all classes are familiar with 
the next type — the perennial visitor. Heis 
not the man who "drops in" for a few mo- 
ments, has some purpose in his visit, states it 
briefly and then, whenhiserrand is completed, 
takes his departure. We are all glad to wel- 
come such a visitor, but when one of the itin- 
erant class puts in appearance and wearies 
us with his monotonous flow of empty para- 
phrases of other men's opinions, we regret 
that we left our latchstring hanging out to 
tempt him to enter. Perchance he is the man 
who possesses but one subject upon which he 
can intelligently converse, and, worse than 
all others, that subject may be himself We 
foresee the ordeal through which we must 
pass and with the utmost patience prepare to 
endure it. We recognize this type as one of 
the necessities of our college course. He sup- 
plies the missing link in the chain of human 

There is another type of man about whom 
the Listener believes a misconception is cher- 
ished. He is generally called the "all-round" 
man. Strictly speaking, no such individual 
exists. There are some men who attain a 
pre-eminence in some one line, and also a me- 
diocrity in several others, but their reputation 
rests upon the former, and because in this 
they are successful we give them credit for 
more skill than they really possess. A man of 
less talent, imagining that the road to success 
lies in applying himself to many different 
kinds of work, uselessly fritters away his ef- 
forts, and at the end of his course can point 
to no meritorious achievement. The truly 
successful college man is not the "all-round" 

Another type of the college man causes us 
more trouble than any other. We all know 
him. We sec him sprinting for the chapel at 
the fifteenth stroke of the bell. He comes to 
recitations five minutes after the period has 



begun. He has kept us waiting when an im- 
portant engagement was pending even if he 
did not fail lis altogether. Perhaps it is to 
make amends for these deficiencies that he is 
in such haste to leave the church and chapel 
services, and employs the interval of the clos- 
ing hymn and the benediction to don his over- 
coat and rubbers. 

But one type remains to be described and 
this includes the great majority of the stu- 
dents of any college. It is the man who goes 
quietly about his business and who is always 
in his place when needed. He holds a posi- 
tion well to the front in his class. When he 
undertakes a task he always accomplishes it. 
He realizes that he is in college for a purpose, 
and he determines to make his course count 
for all it is worth. He makes no boasts, his 
name may appear but seldom in the college 
periodicals, but his class-mates realize his 
worth, and, although unheralded his pros-

is the type of the true American college stu- 

:^x-Gov. B. F. Prescott. 

Benjamin Franklin Prescott, '56, ex-gov- 
ernor of New Hampshire and trustee of Dart- 
mouth College, died at his home in Epping 
Thursday morning, February 21, aged 61 
years, 11 months and 25 days. 

He was born in Epping, where he spent his 
first fifteen years on the farm and attending 
the district school. He fitted for Dartmouth 
at Blanchard Academy in Pembroke and at 
Phillips Exeter, and graduated from here with 
honors in 1856. After this he entered the law 
oflSce of H. A. and A. H. Bellows at Concord, 
and was admitted to the Merrimac bar in 
1859. In '61 he became editor of the Inde- 
pendent Democrat, which position he held 
until 1866. He was a strong supporter of 
President Lincoln and his policy. 

He was special agent of the treasury under 
Lincoln and for a time under Grant, and was 
New Hampshire's secretary of state in '72, '73, 

'75 and '76, became republican governor in 
'77, and was re-elected the next year. He 
was non-partisan in his management of affairs 
and before he left the governor's chair saw 
the state laws revised, the new prison con- 
structed and the militia organized. 

In 1880 he was chairman of the New Hamp- 
shire delegation to the republican convention 
at Cincinnati. He served six years on the 
state railroad commission, receiving his ap- 
pointment in 1887. 

In 1878 he became a trustee ex-officio and 
by vote of the alumni has since served. He 
has also been a trustee of the N. H. C. M. 
A., and two 3'ears ago became president of 
the board. He was a member of the Royal 
Historical Society of London and vice-presi- 
dent of the N, H. Historical Society and pres- 
ident of the Bennington Monument Associa- 
tion. It was largely through his efforts that 
the portrait galleries at the New Hampshire 
state house, in the rooms of the Historical 
Society and at Phillips Exeter Academy and 
here in Dartmouth were filled with some 
excellent portraits. He was married in 1869 
to Miss Mary L. Noyes, and his wife and a 
son, now fitting for Dartmouth in Phillips 
Exeter, survive him. His funeral was held in 

In his service to the state, the slightest 
difference between official and unofficial inter- 
est could not be detected. Office to him was 
an incident to patriotism, not patriotism an 
incident to office. He was an excellent repre- 
sentative of the idea of earnest, arduous and 
solicitous citizenship. He had a w^ide range of 
interest and was quite as much absorbed in 
educational as in political affairs. He was a 
product of New Hampshire and always had 
a deep and steady love for it. His essential 
right-mindedness was noticeable and his 
mental instincts were sure and true. The 
time of his youth, that in which the anti- 
slavery conflict raged, was a period of high 
moral impression and had much to do in 
determining the moral set of his life. His 
most conspicuous personal quality was posi- 



tive and unswerving loyalty, without irritat- 
ing unreasonableness to his friends, to his 
party and to his principles. He was a great 
collector of portraits and memorials, and it 
was an intelligent service of enthusiasm and 
love. He made himself familiar with much of 
the best in the history and biography of the 
state and of the countr}^ and living in this 
historic world the present became a world of 
men, not of things. He had a great capacity 
for friendship, a great quality of friendliness 
and the instinct of helpfulness. He was a 
man born to the uses and rewards of friend- 
ships. He was of the people and for the peo- 
ple, simple in habit, honest in purpose, kindly 
in spirit; a man to be trusted among men. In 
his death the state will mourn the loss of one 
of her worthiest and most devoted sons. 

The Resolutions. 


At a meeting of the Amherst students the 
resolutions adopted by Dartmouth were 
rejected, and the position taken by the Amherst 
delegates at the recent base ball convention 
was approved. 

A meeting of the Dartmouth students was 
held in Old Chapel, March 6. The following 
document from Williams was read : 

"At a mass meeting of the students of Wil- 
liams College held Monday evening, February 
25, 1895, it was unanimously voted to reject 
the Dartmouth resolutions. 

At a subsequent meeting held Wednesday 
evening, February 27, to definitely define Wil- 
liams' position in regard to the playing of 
Dartmouth medical students in base ball 
championship games, the following resolution 
was unanimously voted : 

That the president of the American Col- 
legiate Base Ball Association be asked to 
immediately call a special meeting of the 

That Williams shall send delegates to that 
meeting instructed to vote to allow Dart- 
mouth medical students to play, except those 

who have enrolled since the close of the base 
ball season of 1894, and those who have not 
pursued since the beginning of the college year 
a course requiring twelve hours of recitations 
or lectures weekly. 

This rule will apply only to the base ball 
season of 1895. 

Furthermore, that next year Williams will 
vote to debar medical students from partici- 
pation in championship games of base ball." 

It is understood that a meeting of the dele- 
gates representing the three colleges will be 
held March 9 at Greenfield. The delegates 
for Dartmouth are Manager Brown and 
Captain Abbott.

A reception was held at Alpha Delta Hall 
Wednesday evening, March 6, from eight to 
twelve. The hall was prettily decorated with 
evergreen and potted plants. An informal 
dance was given, and whist tables were ar- 
ranged in one of the rooms for those who pre- 
ferred to play cards, in another room refresh- 
ments were served. The following ladies re- 
ceived : Mrs. Campbell, Mrs. Emerson, Mrs.

the reception a grand success in every respect. 


The Dartmouth alumni of Concord and 
vicinity tendered President and Mrs. Tucker 
a reception in the parlors of the Phoenix hotel. 
Concord, Monday evening, February 18. 
The event was the most brilliant in the history 
of the association. Mrs. Dana, Mrs. Wm. M. 
Chase, Mrs. F. S. Streeter and Mrs. G. P. 
Conn assisted in receiving. D. C. Richard- 
son, '91, and H. B. Metcalf, '93, presented 
the guests. Later in the evening President 
Tucker spoke to the alumni. The officers of 
the ensuing year were chosen before the 
reception, as follows: President, Dr. Claudius 
B. Webster, '36; vice-president, Hon. William 
M, Chase, '58; secretary, George H. Moses, 
'90; treasurer, Louis C. Merrill, '74; executive 
committee, L. J. Rundlett, '81, Dr. George

The annual meeting of the Intercollegiate 
Athletic Association occurred at the Fifth 
Avenue hotel in New York February 23. 
These colleges were represented: Yale, Harvard, 
Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, Col- 
lege of the City of New York, Cornell, Syra- 
cuse, Swarthmore, Brown, Fordham, George- 
town, Stevens' Institute, Wesleyan, Trinity, 
Lafayette, Columbia, Rutgers, State Uni- 
versity of Iowa, University of California, 
Syracuse University and Dartmouth. The 

last four institutions were admitted to the 
league. Bugbee, '95, and Chase, '96, were 
the Dartmouth delegates. The officers elected 
were: President, J. M. Kendrick, U. of P.; 
vice-president, F. M, Goddard of Trinity; 
secretary, R. Van Arsdale. The winners of 
the first and second places in the intercolleg- 
iate events will represent American colleges 
in an internationaj athletic contest in Eng- 
land the coming season. A proposition was 
received from the Amateur Athletic Union to 
form an alliance. The different colleges will 
vote upon the- proposition by mail. Dart- 
mouth's chances for sending a contestant to 
England are good,- and we hope that every 
student will take interest in this new field for 
our athletes. 

Freshman Banquet. 

The banquet of the class of '98 was held at 
the Quincy House, Boston, on February 21, 
from 7 to 11 p. m. About forty-five were 
present and did ample justice to the excellent 
menu. Shortly after 9 o'clock Toastmaster 
J. R. Chandler began the post-prandial exer. 
cises by introducing the president, R. F. 
Marden, who was followed by A. D. Wilson 
on "This is the event of the term." "The col- 
lege," by E. W. Snow, and "The ladies," by 
W. T. Sumner were the next toasts. All then 
arose and sang some verses, prepared for the 
occasion, to the tune of "Sweet Marie." "The 
class," by F. V. Bennis, "Our Victims," by A. 
J. Abbott, "Athletics," by J. B. C. Eckstorm, 
and "Incidents of November 21, 1894," by 
A. Smith, were the remaining toasts, followed 
by many informal ones. This was the first 
banquet ever held in Boston by an under- 
graduate class of Dartmouth, but probably 
it will not be the last. 

Sophomore Class Supper. 

The Sophomores held their class supper at 
the Manchester House, Manchester, February 
21. David J. Maloney was toastmaster, and 
the toasts were as follows: Address, Frank B. 



Goodenow ; Dartmouth of Today, Harry H. 
Blunt; Reminiscences, Frank M. Coakley ; 
Our New Professors, Joseph O. Simpson ; The 
Ones We Love, Raymond E. Maben; Super- 
iors in Name, Edward K. Woodworth; Our 
Prospects, Benjamin F. Adams ; Rho Kappa 
Tau, Theron H. Huckins ; Ninety-seven, Harry 
A, Gibson; Poem, E. G. Carr; informal toast, 
Walter E. McCornack ; class song. About 
forty, men w^ere present and everything went 
off smoothly in spite of the attempt alleged 
to have been made by the Freshmen to make 
the proprietor postpone arrangements "on 
account of the death of a prominent athlete 
in the class." In many respects the supper 
and speeches surpassed the same of a year ago. 

Fifth Annual Indoor Meet. 

The fifth annual indoor meet of the Dart- 
mouth Athletic Associatif)n was held in the 
gvmnasium Saturday afternoon, March 2.

Greek at Dartmouth. 

No Dartmouth student of the period be- 
tween 1870 and 1879 could write of Greek at 
Dartmouth without grateful recollection of 
Professor John Carroll Proctor, as represent- 
ing the best type of the old-time classical 
instruction. A mastery of the minutiae of the 
language, an ardent love for the Greek litera- 
ture, delicate literary tast*?, and humor as 
keen as it was quiet, gave to his instruction 
both life and strength. The sound grammat- 
ical drill of Freshman year was a strong dis- 
cipline in itself and a thorough foundation 
for later study. His later courses, especially 
those in Sophocles and. Demosthenes, were 
removed as far as possible from dry technical 
routine, while no one who heard his brilliant 
translation of Aristophanes' Clouds will ever 
forget the two-fold revelation of the brilliancy 
of the Attic comedy, and the fun and wit of 
the quiet professor of Greek. 

During the later _years of Professor Proc- 
tor's service a new movement was setting in 
under the influence of the rapid development 
of natural science and the increased study of 
the modern languages. Charles Francis 
Adams' attack on the "College P'etich," at 
the Harvard commencement of 1883, was the 
expression of a wide-spread feeling that the 
time and effort spent upon the classics in 
school and college was altogether out of 
proportif)n to the results; it was claimed that 
the ordinary student could read neither Latin 




nor Greek at graduation and that his-college 
study had been perfunctory and superficial. 

In the course of the vigorous debates which 
followed in the press, while some of the 
charges were shown to be exaggerated, teach- 
ers of Greek were forced to admit, to them- 
selves at least, that there was altogether too 
much ground for the attack ; very few col- 
lege students could read Greek with any 
facility' ; the result was either the vexatious 
thumbing of the lexicon for every clause of 
every sentence, or the profitless and unschol- 
arly resort to the "horse;" in either case 
only a mere fragment could be read in any 
term. The student who had read a couple of 
dramas must be content to take the rest of 
his knowledge of Greek tragedy and comedy 
from the reports of other people. The read- 
ing of a few fragments of Herodotus' story of 
the Persian Wars, supplemented by a melan- 
choly month with the "Funeral Oration," 
was the only knowledge of the sources of 
Greek history which a student could obtain; 
a single dialogue of Plato must stand for all 
of Greek philosophy. 

In many cases there was also the tendency 
to exalt grammatical study as an end rather 
than a means, and in general the results 
of Greek study were for most men vague 
and incomplete. 

The attack on Greek succeeded, not in driv- 
ing Greek from the college curriculum, but in 
reforming both the methods and the aims of 
Greek teaching. 

It vvas seen at once that the power to read 
Greek rapidly and accurately must be em- 
phasized from the first ; fitting schools began 
to give sharp attention to the acquisition of 
vocabulary iind to sight-reading; rapid 
translation was cultivated as an art. The 
colleges offered the "alternative" method for 
entrance examination, by which the student's 
fitness was determined, not by pages already 
read, but actual power of reading. 

College courses began to broaden on the 
side of literature; more matter was read in 
any giveo term ; more attention was given to 

the literary criticism of the Greek authors. 

But the battle for Greek received unexpected 
allies. At the very time when the attack was 
gathering, Schliemann was calling the My- 
kenaean warriors from their tombs to fight 
their own battles ; at the same time the Ger- 
mans were publishing the results of their 
excavations at Olympia, throwing open a 
new world of Greek art. The art and archi- 
tecture of Greece came forward as a new and 
a most important feature of classical study, 
while the foundation of the American school 
at Athens in 1882 brought our colleges into 
close touch with the new movement. 

A third influence operating at the same 
time in many of our colleges was the coming 
into their faculties of young men fresh from 
the German universities; they brought two 
elements to our Greek instruction ; first, the 
idea of original research by the student as an 
essential part of the advanced work of the 
college, and second, the acute critical spirit in 
literature and history. 

A fourth influence, at Dartmouth at least, 
was the sub-division of the lower classes ac- 
cording to scholarship, and the introduction 
of electives into the upper classes. Under the 
old system of alphabetical sub-division, the 
dullards and the idle had set the pace for the 
able and the ambitious ; the recitation hour 
was devoted as much to finding out what 
men were incompetent or unprepared as to 
helping and stimulating those who were able 
and studious. Under the new system, the 
sub-division by scholarship brought into one 
division the men who were prepared for rapid 
and accurate work, into another, those v^ho 
either could not or would not do work of 
the highest character. 

The introduction of electives enabled the 
student to continue Greek throughout his 
course, and that in the closest possible con- 
tact with his instructor. Naturally, elective 
divisions are made up for the most part oi 
»ien who excel in the given department, and 
men who work from a love of the subject. 
The stimulus that has come through this 



means can hardly be realized by those who 
were trained in the old way. 

Now from all of these sources has arisen the 
Greek teaching of today in all of our colleges ; 
its essential peculiarities are along the lines 
mentioned; constant attention to sight-read- 
ing, with and without translation into Eng- 
lish, a great increase in the amount of Greek 
read in anj- year, a broader study of Greek 
literature, sharper literary and historical 
criticism, the vivyfying of the whole by the 
study of Greek art, emphasis upon original 
investigation in the later stages of the course, 
sub-division of classes in required work ac- 
cording to scholarship of students, closer con- 
tact between pupil and instructor through 
small elective divisions, and the continuation 
of Greek throughout the course by advanced 
electives. These changes have amounted to 
little less than a revolution. They were 
alread\' beginning under Professor Proctor; 
after his death they were carried out by two 
men who entered heartily into the new move- 
ment and who are among, its strongest rep- 
resentatives, Professor John H. Wright and 
Professor Rufus B. Richardson. 

To maintain and develop these principles is 
the aim of the department toda3^ The de- 
partment carries on two courses, quite dis- 
tinct in their aims and methods. The first is 
the required Greek course of the first four 
terms, closing at the end of the Sophomore 
fall ; here the needs of two sets of men must 
be met ; the one set will use this course as the 
foundation for the advanced electives, the 
other men will depend upon this course for 
their entire knowledge of the Greek language 
and literature. 

Homer, Herodotus, Plato and Sophocles 
are the authors read. In connection with 
the reading the history of Greece is followed 
to the end cjf the fifth century B. C, the 
beginnings of Greek history, in connection 
with Homer, the fecundation and early 
development of the Athenian democracy, in 
connection with Herodotus, and the Age of 
Perikles, in connection with the work of 

Socrates and the growth of the Greek drama. 
The course, while necessarily limited, has thus 
a perfect unity and gives a consistent view of 
Greek life and literature at its best. But the 
old-time grammatical drill is by no means 
omitted in this preliminary course; it is 
essential as a means to fit men for the higher 
courses, and invaluable as a discipline for 
those whose course ends with Sophomore 
fall ; this grammatical study is re-inforced by 
Greek prose composition during Freshman 
winter and spring. Especial attention is 
given to rapid sight-reading, and in Homer 
and Herodotus the first division of the class 
is examined on sight passages at the close of 
the term. 

The second course of the Greek department 
begins with Sophomore winter and continues 
as an elective course to the end of Senior year. 
In successive terms the following departments 
of literature are studied in a critical way: 
Greek Oratory, Epic Poetry, The Drama, 
History and Philosophy. In each of these 
courses the author read serves as a center 
around which to gather the history of the 
development of that department of literature; 
a large amount is read in the Greek; this is 
often supplemented by extensive reading 
in standard translations, the results being 
brought into the class-room in theses by the 
student; the whole matter is then unified by 
lectures and discussion by the instructor. In 
some of the courses each student follows out 
some minute topic during the term by way of 
original research, and presents his results in 
a thesis at the end of the term. Some of the 
topics so investigated the past year are as 
follows: The Structure of the Period in 
Demosthenes, The Simile and Metaphof as 
used in the Oration on the Crown, Demos- 
thenes' fundamental political and ethical 
principles as inferred from the Oration on the 
Crown, evidence as to the guilt of Alcibiades 
before the Sicilian expedition, Greek forms for 
"Yes" and "No" in the dialogues of Plato, 
Plato's debt to Parmenides, 

In addition to the courses in literature a 



course is given in Linguistics, which serves as 
an introduction to comparative philology, and 
a course in Greek Archaeology. The college 
has a very extensivecollection of photographs 
for the latter work, and the librar\' facilities 
have been sfreatlv increased in the same 
direction in later years. 

A post-graduate course this year includes 
the critical study of the Homeric Ques- 
tion, practice in weighing and combining 
manuscript readings in Demosthenes, the 
study of technical details in Greek rhetoric and 
an introduction to Greek epigraphy. 

The success of these courses must always 
be conditioned upon thorough preparation at 
entrance. With only four terms of required 
Greek, the student has no time to fit for col- 
lege after he comes here. He ought to bring 
a good vocabulary, sound knowledge of 
forms and syntax, and real skill in the art of 
translation ; the new methods demand such 
preparation more emphatically than did the 
old. Such preparation assured, the course 
offers the possibility of appreciating the Greek 
literature, and the ability to read Greek with 
pleasure at the close of the course.

'42 — Lincoln Flagg Brigham, ex-chief jus- 
tice of Massachusetts, died at his home in Sa- 
lem, Feb. 26. He was born in Cambridge- 
port, Oct. 4, 1819, and received his early ed- 

ucation in the public schools. When a boy he 
left school and entered the counting room of 
Samuel Austin of Boston, with a view to a 
commercial life. Three vears after he aban- 
doned commercial life and fitted for college un- 
der the care of Rev. David Peabody, the hus- 
band of his eldest sister, and afterwards pro- 
fessor of belles lettres and rhetoric in Dart- 
mouth college. Two years after graduation 
he received the degree of LL. B. as a graduate 
of the Dane law school in Cambridge, and in 
1883 the degree of LL. D. from his alma ma- 
ter. In 1853 Mr. Brigham was appointed by 
Gov. Clifford attorney of the southern district 
of Massachusetts and in 1856, when the of- 
fice of district attorney was made elective, he 
was chosen attorney by the people of the dis- 
trict and held the office until 1859, when he 
was appointed by Gov. Nathaniel P. Banks 
to a seat on the bench of the superior court, 
then first established. Although Justice Brig- 
ham was associated with remarkably able ju- 
rists on that first superior bench, which in- 
cluded such men as Marcus Morton, Otis P. 
Lord, Seth Ames, Julius Rockwell and John 
P. Putnam, he was considered the peer of all. 
In 1869 Justice Brigham was appointed chief 
justice by Gov. William Claflin and with the 
exception of Lemuel Shaw, he held the posi- 
tion longer than any man in the history of 
the judiciar}' of Massachusetts. Aug. 31, 
1890, Justice Brigham, owing to failing 
health, was obliged to resign his position, to 
the deep regret of the bench, bar and people. 
Justice Brigham was not only an ideal man 
mentally, but physically as well. He married 
Oct. 20, 1847, Eliza Endicott, daughter of 
Thomas Swain of New Bedford, who survives 
him. He also leaves four sons.
